[behind the lens]
Hi, I'm Veronika Reinert, an award-winning photographer specializing in
PEOPLE + MOVEMENT
I didn't discover photography as my calling until I was unexpectedly hit in the face with it in my early 20s. I had just graduated from UC Berkeley with two degrees in Dance and History and was heading down the path of becoming a professional Pilates teacher when I met Anna Vickroy, the brilliant eye behind ultra-spective photography. Walking into her studio for my headshots, her unique portrait gallery blew my mind and lit the fire that became my obsession with photography. Not only did I want to capture images that made others feel the way I felt when I looked at her work, I wanted to create the kinds of photos I had so lovingly plastered onto my bedroom walls from my dance and Pilates magazines.
Thus, [motion]scape photography was born.
I spent the next several years sharpening my photography skills while still teaching Pilates and fitness. I eventually moved to Southern California where I held positions doing marketing and in-house photography for EPIC Series Obstacle Challenge and BASI Pilates. In 2017 I was voted Runner Up for "Best Obstacle Course Racing Photographer" in Mud Run Guide's international Best of OCR awards, landing me a guest spot on Margaret Schlachter's Dirt In Your Skirt podcast. My work has also been featured on book covers, across multiple issues of Pilates Style Magazine, and in Pilates teacher training materials used worldwide.
Fast forward to now, and to you who is reading this.
I know there are hundreds of fantastic photographers out there to choose from. However, when it comes to Pilates, yoga, dance, or fitness photography, the best images will come from an experienced photographer with a knowledgeable eye who understands correct technique, proper angles, and speaks the same movement language.
With [motion]scape photography, I fuse my years of portrait photography experience with my strong movement background to produce beautiful, creative, high quality images that command attention. I've helped dozens of passionate movers and shakers promote themselves and their businesses by creating magazine-worthy images that capture the essence of their personality and brand. I've also photographed their weddings, family portraits, and all the special chapters in their lives that they will look back on and cherish forever.

I had such a great time working with Veronika to create my brand image!
We did a long shoot back when I first started my fitness business and I got enough for over a year of marketing. She has a great eye and has such a great energy on set!
